View topic - ピーマン
While speaking to a native Japanese in the area, I said "I was forgetting things a bit more frequently than I used to" and called myself a 'ピーマン' and she asked me in English "why I would refer to myself as a green pepper." Then she asked; "Is that an English expression?"
Have I really lost my mind or is this not as common a phrase as I thought it was?

You know the destiny of this kind of fad words. They become extinct.

Oops... for some reason Nile-cat and coco's responses didn't show up for me when I typed this, so it looks like you already have your answer.
